I Just Wanna Hug You - Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit

 Hello! I'm back with another card using with the BRAND NEW October 2021 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit - So Talkative! This month's kit is super different and modern - and all about the fun sentiments! The included stamp set by the same name is full of great sentiments in a simple bold font, there is a perfect Talk Bubbles stencil, a super cool Friend Outline word die, a fun embossing folder, lovely SSS blending brush - that's all not to mention the cardstock, envelopes, and more! 

For today's card, I played with the Friend Outline die and a bunch of the cardstock from the kit. This card might be a bit heavy with all those cardstock layers! :)


I started off by die cutting the Friend Outline die from a strip of the holographic paper. I was going to use the outlines, but then started looking at how fun it was to leave the outlines out, and let some stripes of solid cardstock show through - so I went with that. I layered some fun colors cut into thin strips at an angle on some Cream cardstock, then added the negative and solid letters of the Friend Outline die inside.


I trimmed everything off, and added a sentiment from the stamp set that went well with the large friend word, then took those same colors of cardstock, trimmed them down a bit larger than the front panel, and adhered them one at a time at a fun angle behind it. I love how all the colors peek out in fun angles all around! I finished by adhering that panel with foam onto a white cardbase. Do you see the fun holographic envelope from the kit tucked under the card as well?

So Many Happy Thoughts - Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit

Hello! I'm here today to share my first card with the BRAND NEW October 2021 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit - So Talkative! This month's kit is super different and modern - and all about the fun sentiments! The included stamp set by the same name is full of great sentiments in a simple bold font, there is a perfect Talk Bubbles stencil, a super cool Friend Outline word die, a fun embossing folder, lovely SSS blending brush - that's all not to mention the cardstock, envelopes, and more! 


This card kit just lends itself perfectly to clean and simple card designs - so of course that is what I created! I started off by using the fun new Kaleidoscope embossing folder on some white cardstock, as well as some of the Burn Orange in the kit. I trimmed that panel into a diagonal strip so that it would create a band across the card front.


Next, I used two colors if distress oxide inks to blend over one of the Talk Bubbles stencil, and added a sentiment stamped over the top before fussy cutting out to mount with foam adhesive. Finished off with a few sparkly clear sequins!

Christmas Cards - Simon Says Stamp Holy Night Card Kit

Good morning! I'm popping in today to share a couple cards with a beautiful NEW Limited Edition Holy Night Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp! This is such a beautiful kit - and I love how it is focused on the real reason for the season as well!


I love that huge sparkly star - and thought that little sheep looked perfect looking up at it - so I created a scene with that idea!


I die cut the star a three times from white cardstock, and one time from gold glitter cardstock. I layered and paper pieced them together, and added the top white layer with just a dot of liquid glue in the center, so I could leave the edges to float free for dimension.


I added a hill using Drifting Stitches die on white cardstock, then stamped, colored, and fussy cut out that sweet little sheep to put on the hill.


I added a gold pearl in the center of the star, and stamped my sentiment on the bottom!


Next up, I thought the Holy City Skyline stencils were super fun, so I did a light and bright card with those - instead of the expected dark night sky!


I just did one layer of the buildings, and used some soft brown ink, with yellow over the top for the windows. I added the stars in blue ink, then stamped a sentiment over the top in black.


I did a bit of ink blending around the edges with the same brown ink, just softer, to take the white edge off and soften the edges a bit.


Finished off by matting that panel with some of the gold cardstock in the kit, and some of the yellow pattern paper, before mounting on a white cardbase!

Thrill of Hope - Pinkfresh Studio Instagram Release Hop

 Hello! Today I am part of a fun Instagram hop to celebrate the new Pinkfresh Studio releaseThis release has had me singing Christmas carols and dreaming of crisp wintery nights - so perfect and fun! I created this card on Facebook Live last week as a sneak peek of the upcoming release - you can watch that video HERE if you want to see it all come together!


I used the gorgeous new Thrill of Hope Wreath Stencil for the background, with some fun non-traditional colors. Love this one in the traditional red and green I've seen from other team members - but it was super fun to do something different with it! Once it was stenciled, I die cut with Diagonal Stitched Squares die, and added some gold splatters to the background.


Next up, it was time to heat up the hot foil machine and foil the background with the new Diamond hot foil plate, as well as the sentiment using Thrill of Hope hot foil.


Added a wrap of jute string around the square panel before adhering with foam over the background, and added a secondary sentiment from the Thrill of Hope stamp set - then finished off with a few clusters of sparkly Gold Metallic Pearls!
